Causey Makes History at South Boston Speedway

Concord, NC (May 22, 2017) – Macy Causey, 16-year-old resident of York County, VA, won at South Boston Speedway in the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series Late Model Stock Car Division (LMSC) this past Saturday night. Causey, the youngest member in the history of NASCAR’s Drive for Diversity Program, earned her first career LMSC victory, and became the first female to win a LMSC race at South Boston Speedway. Causey survived an early race mishap when then-leader Lee Pulliam’s motor expired, bringing out the red flag for a lengthy clean-up during the first LMSC race of the Bojangles Twin 75s. Causey eventually went on to hold off Brandon Pierce in a two-lap dash to the finish. This highly competitive race had seven lead changes among five drivers. It took an hour and 23 minutes to complete the 75-lap race, with six cautions and two red flags. Causey’s teammate, Madeline Crane, unfortunately was part of a late race caution while running 4th and was unable to finish the first twin or compete in the second. During this first race, Causey managed to hold off three NASCAR Whelen All-American Series National Champions, including Peyton Sellers (one-time national champion), Phillip Morris (four-time national champion), and Lee Pulliam (three-time national champion). Sellers, Morris, and Pulliam also combine for five South Boston Speedway track championships. “It feels amazing,” said Macy Causey. “I’m super excited. I started crying during my interview in Victory Lane. I didn’t know what to do.” Causey is the granddaughter of Diane Teel, the first woman to win a NASCAR-sanctioned race and the first woman from Virginia recognized in the NASCAR Hall of Fame. “To see where NASCAR was when I was racing to now and watching my grandbaby win her first ever late model race is hard to put in words,” said Diane Teel. “Macy has done something so great that I think it will take awhile for her to understand how big of a deal this was. To win at a place like South Boston with all of its history is so overwhelming for all of us to take in right now. And, she did it the right way without wrecking people to win. That’s what was the best part for me.” Causey and her Rev Racing team finished the second Twin in 5th position after being inverted to an 8th place start, due to winning the first Twin. Causey and Crane will be back in action at Hickory Motor Speedway next Saturday, May 27th.
